Yeah he’s gone. One year left on his contract so not much leverage either.

Signing Sanchez was such a shit call


#182

There’s a one year extension clause on the contract.

Would be much more gutted if it was Rashford tbh, Martial has all the ability in the world but I’m not necessarily convinced he’s got the drive to fulfill his potential (this will obviously come back to bite me in the bottom)


#183

In!?
You filthpot


#184

So glad I don’t need to pretend not to hate Oxlade Chamberlain anymore. Such a private school twat.


#185

Feel like he was already pretty close in the first half of the season? At least to showing the kind of progression that a player of his age would be expected to. Was certainly playing at a much higher level than Sanchez too


#186

He started well but he and Rashford were basically alternating coming on as impact subs and doing well in games, neither of them were playing well from the start of games.


#187

Isn’t that more to do with the Man United curse that turns all exciting attacking players into stodge merchants


#188

Premier League fixtures are out in 2 mins…

#190

Arsenal City on day one! Ooft!


#191

Man Utd away on the first day. Fan fucking tastic.


#192

And then Arsenal away at Chelsea! Ooft!


#193

Arsenal away, Liverpool away and Spurs away in the first ten games.

Seems fair.


#194

Chelsea away from home on Boxing Day for the first time in living memory. Which is good. Games against nearly all the main title contenders at home in the first half of the season and away in the second. Not so good.


#195

Seems that the fixtures have transpired once again to make it difficult for my team


#196

Ffs, Leicester away while I’m on holiday. Reckon my Leicester mates could’ve sorted some tickets for that.


#197

I’d see that as a positive. Recent history’s shown it’s better to hit the ground running.


#198

Also, why doesn’t it just say ‘Week 1, Week 2, etc’ for now, rather than Saturday 1500 when in reality there is only going to be 1 or 2 games that are Sat 3pm.


#199

I think you’d have to strongly fancy Manchester United based on those fixtures.


#200

that’s quite a nice start and finish for Liverpool
